U-Haul Food Drive

Going Our Way!?!  Partnering with the local U-Hual resulted in a Win-Win for the BHS Pet Food Program. The U-Haul Manager & Team were totally amazing! They made one of their U-Boxes available on their lot from October 29th through November 2nd to collect much needed pet food donations. Through the kindness of the Pocatello / Chubbuck communities people purchased and then left food donations in the U-Box Through this wonderful donation of an amazing U-Box the BHS collected a little over 1200 pounds of cat and dog food. The donated food is an incredible, caring boost from our communities as we hand it out to those in need every 3rd Wednesday of the month.

Over the past six months the BHS has struggled to make ends meet with the Pet Food Program. Like everyone else, the BHS has experienced a food insecurity with what we had available to hand out to those in need, so U-Haul’s timing could not have been better. The donated food and kindness of people could not have been more timely.

Every morning the U-Haul Team opened the door of the U-Box, kept an eye on the container throughout the day, then locked the container when they closed. During the day, kind people from the community stopped by to deliver the much needed and appreciated pet food. The BHS could not have had better care from U-haul’s wonderful employees! The Bannock Humane Society is grateful to the U-Haul Team, and the loving community which we serve …. Helping Us … Help Them!


BHS Spay / Neuter Clinic

The Spay / Neuter Clinic is held on Wednesday nights from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the BHS Building, 850 Barton Road. 

Please, bring your furry family members with you to sign up for their vaccinations, health check and scheduling for their spay / neuter. For information on cost, please click HERE.

 

Microchipping Program

Exciting News!! The Bannock Humane Society offers microchipping at the Wednesday Spay / Neuter Clinics from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.! 

Hi, I’m Romeo and I was lost, cold and hungry. When kind people found me I had no microchip! I was in foster care, but now I have a new home and a microchip! Life is sweet again!

As you come-in to enroll your dog or cat in the Healthy Pet Program for their health shots and spay / neutering, add in an affordable microchip to protect them should they become lost or stray. 

Or, if your dog or cat is already spay / neutered, bring them to the BHS just for the microchipping. 

The microchip will be embedded by the veterinarian working with the BHS on the Wednesday night you come. The wonderful veteriarians who work with the BHS are from Alpine Animal Hospital and Hawthorne Animal Hospital. 

The cost is: $20.00 per animal and $15.00 per animal for folks over 60 years of age. No checks please. Cash or Paypal work nicely. 

Come and protect your furry family with a microchip, it can bring them home if they are lost!!
